Creativity and Making for Change Series - Making Meaning Through Craft and Critical Design
Art, craft and design have been valuable mediums for social change throughout history. Creative thinking is transdisciplinary and encourages learning and connection through storytelling. In collaboration with MRU’s Maker Studio this series of conversations will focus on hand-ons and brain-ons activities that bring participants to an understanding of how creativity and making has been, and continues to be used to address some of our biggest challenges in society.
Building on the introduction to critical design and critical making from the Maker’s Studio, we’ll explore craft and critical design with a hands-on activity. Join local artist Skye Louis for some hands on crafting and discussion about how craft can build empathy and human connection to support changemaking. No experience required, but you will need scissors and blank paper.
